Description

Apnea International Instructor Training

Teaching Beyond the Numbers

The Philosophy underlying Apnea International's education resonates with those who have a love for the water as much as a calling to educate beyond the numbers attached to freediving.

When we were contacted by Erez Beatus, the founder of Apnea International, we quickly saw the strong resonance in our philosophies. We are happy to add select candidates to the ranks of the AI instructors.  

See more on the AI Philosophy on the AI Website.
